Finally finished writing our musical!
So we’ve finished writing Intesa and we’ve started sending the draft script to people to review and read and honestly I’m blown away by the response. People are saying it’s heartbreaking, inspirational and makes you think. This is more than I ever could have hoped for. If you haven’t read about our show yet, here’s the synopsis and website if you wanna take a look!
Excited for it to premiere in London in April, then in LA in October 2015!
UNDERSTANDING IS THE KEY TO KNOWLEDGE.
We are not born mean, or homophobic, or racist or sexist. It’s the environment and influence of those closest to you. We are taught the behaviour we have.
As a society, we are so busy with our lives, that we never take time to notice anyone else. Sometimes, people just need an ear to listen. People are so quick to judge others, but what would you think if you really knew their story? This hard hitting new musical tackles the untold stories of bullying from the people you’d least expect. The mother who’s being bullied by her teenage daughter. The businessman who’s hiding his pain, while every day he gets taunted and harassed at his workplace. The girl who is just trying to fit in with her friends. The homeless guy, barely surviving but not really living.
This show takes you on an emotional roller coaster as we discover just how bullying and intimidation affects even the strongest of people.
The name of the show derives from the Italian language. The word ‘Intesa’ means ‘Understanding’. If people understood what others went through, would they still turn a blind eye? Would they still judge?
